56. Israeli Forces Cut Gaza in 3; More Than 500 Palestinians Killed
Source: ABC News

Israeli troops moved deeper into the Gaza Strip Monday, attempting to slice Gaza into three sections to strengthen their grip around the territory's cities.

Israel's assault on the governing Hamas regime has raised the Palestinian death toll to 550, with more than 2,800 injured, and Gaza's main hospital has seen a major influx of civilian casualties since Israeli troops crossed the border Saturday.

ABC News' producer in Gaza, Sammi Zyara, said that Israeli forces opened fire on the roof of his home today. His wife and eight children have not left their house in 10 days.

Dr. Mads Gilbert is working in Gaza's main hospital, Al Shifa Hospital, and told the BBC by phone that Israel's claim that it isn't targeting civilians is "absolutely stupid."
